The Fabulous Fifth Avenue Street Fair promises to live up to its name again this year.

The fair - Sunday, May 18, from 11 am to 7 pm, on Fifth Avenue between St. Johns Place and 12th Street - will feature a wide variety of live music at two locations: at Ozzie’s main stage, on Fifth Avenue between Garfield Place and Carroll Street, and at Moda Cafe, on Fifth Avenue between First and Second streets.

Between Berkeley Place and Second Street, there will be a section of tables offering fine arts and crafts, which attracted national media attention last year. Event organizers anticipate vendors will again offer purses and pillows, handcrafted stationary and greeting cards, jewelry, personalized children’s stories and more.

At 718 Gallery, Fifth Avenue at Degraw Street, photographer Ann Rosen will snap individual and family color portraits against a variety of backdrops. Twenty-minute appointments are available between 1 pm and 4:40 pm. While you wait, check out "In the Presence of Family," an exhibit of Rosen’s black-and-white portraits of Brooklyn families, on display at the 718 Gallery through May 31.

Brooklyn Papers photographer Greg Mango will also have a table offering signed and numbered single prints and series of prints at Fifth Avenue and Union Street.

And of course, Fifth Avenue is teeming with many restaurants where fair-goers can dine al fresco: Blue Ribbon, Long Tan, Press 195, Los Pollitos, Bierkraft, Coco Roco and Mezcals.

Kids can enjoy rides all day throughout the fair, and make free paper bag puppets and hats at the Puppetry Arts table, on Fifth Avenue between Second and Third streets.
